Ok, I am going to print that thread out for future reference. Thanks!
Let me try this again now:
<< The only way it would take 6 treatments to kill a hair is if you never treated it in anagen growth phase, or your electrologist did not have the setting made well enough to properly treat that size hair. >>
So since I always shaved my complete beard a day or two before each treatment session, I assume I am correct in stating the only hairs the electrologist could have been working on were those in the anagen phase (I was in stealth mode back then, except to my electrologist–and had been living “full-time”–IOW, I didn’t go in as a guy with a full beard that I had been growing for months).
But the hairs my electrologist had removed always/often (?) grew back as lighter and finer hairs. She said that it can take up to 6 or so treatments of this same hair to get it to go away permanently. So is this a sign of a bad electrologist? How many times should a single hair/papilla have to be treated to get it to completely go away?
<< You need to get to first clearance as quickly as possible so you are only dealing with hairs in growth phase. Full clearances are the only way you can hope to be done in 9 to 18 months. >>
I still don’t understand this, even after having read that other thread. If one has transitioned already and shaves daily, what does it matter? You still have the same number of hairs, and they are still going to have to be treated as much as necessary, whether you do just one hour a week or do a full clear in a few weeks, right? Unless, of course, the regrowth comes back stronger since you are shaving this daily, before your next treatment (??). (Does shaving or time cause for the lighter/finer hairs which regrow to get stronger? Is it normal for electrolysized hairs to regrow, if electrolysized propery?)
Is there even such a word as “electrolysized”? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
